The Towers of San Gimignano

Today we head north through the beautiful Italian countryside. On the way we will visit San Gimignano or “The Town of Fine Towers”, known for its medieval skyscrapers. These towers were a sign of wealth and the rival merchant families were not to be outdone. At one point over 72 towers reached heights of over 70 meters. Take in the view, enjoy time exploring the medieval town center, and enjoy a delicious Tuscan meal during our unforgettable visit to San Gimignano.
